6 Course List (For Students Admitted to the Program No Later than Fall 2006)

In accordance with Senate's Policy Regarding Inactive Courses, course descriptions for courses which have not been offered in the previous three academic years and which are not scheduled to be offered in the current academic year have been removed from the following listing. For information about any of these inactive courses, please contact the Dean of the Faculty.

With the exception of Engineering 1000, courses offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science are identified by a four-digit numbering system, each digit signifying the following:

First - Academic term during which the course is normally offered

  • Second - The primary areas of study, namely:
  • 1 - Complementary Studies
  • 2 - Structure and Behaviour of Materials
  • 3 - Physical Concepts
  • 4 - Mathematics
  • 5 - Engineering Design
  • 6 - Resource-Related
  • 7 - Civil Engineering
  • 8 - Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • 9 - Mechanical Engineering
  • 0 - Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering

Third - Course grouping within areas or programs

Fourth - Course sequence or revision.

6.1 Term 1 Courses


All students take a Complementary Studies elective in Term 1. For a list of electives see Complementary Studies Courses.


An Introduction to Engineering.

- inactive course.


Mechanics I Statics with an Introduction to Dynamics

is an Introduction to vector algebra. Coplanar and non-coplanar force systems, equivalent force systems, moments and equilibrium, emphasizing the use of free body diagrams. Analysis of trusses, frames and machines. Dry friction. Centers of gravity and centroids. Moments of inertia of areas. Geometric aspects of particle motion (kinematics).


Basic Electrical Concepts and Circuits

examines electrical charge, the electric field, energy and voltage, electric current; the magnetic field and its relation to current; sources of electromotive force. Basics of signals and waveforms, periodicity, average and root-mean-square values. Conduction, charge storage, and magnetic flux changes as a basis for component models as resistance, capacitance, and inductance; power and energy relationships. Kirchhoff's laws; formulation and solution for simple circuits; equivalent circuits; Thevenin and Norton representations. The sinusoidal steady state for R-L-C circuits; energy transfer and power, energy storage and reactive power; phasor methods. Relevant laboratory exercises.


Credit may be obtained for only one of Engineering 1333 and the former 2333.


Engineering Mathematics I

examines linear systems and matrices, vector spaces, sequences & series, complex numbers, parametric and polar curves.


Engineering Graphics

Graphics Fundamentals: This part of the course covers the fundamentals of effective graphic communication skills, including drawing with instruments, freehand sketching, orthographic projections of solid objects, auxiliary views, sections, three dimensional pictorials, dimensioning and tolerances, working drawings, and assembly drawings. Computer Graphics: This part of the course introduces the use of a computer aided design package for the construction of two-dimensional drawings and three-dimensional models of engineering objects. These models are used for creating all the necessary projections for the production of engineering drawings. The engineering graphics principles and visualization skills developed in the graphics portion of the course are employed and reinforced.
